Anna (she/her) was born and raised in Frankfurt, Germany and has lived in San Francisco since 2016. Dance and movement have always been an important part of Anna's life. She started training and competing in Rhythmic Gymnastics when she was seven years old and has won various competitions, including the German Championship, during her 13-year journey in this sport.

In 2012, Anna started training in other dance styles, including hip hop, pop, contemporary, ballet, and jazz. She was also part of the cheerleading team at her university in Germany and performed at different local events as well as the Euromasters, a European cheerleading competition.

After moving to San Francisco in 2016, Anna continued to train in different dance styles in San Francisco and LA and joined RAE Agency as a dancer and model. She was a backup dancer for Bebe Rexa as part of Salesforce in the San Francisco pride parade and performed at various corporate events and holiday parties for companies such as Google, Oracle, Samsung, Apple, and the Golden State Warriors. Given her Rhythmic Gymnastics background, Anna’s specialty as a talent continues to be ribbon dancing and dancing with other props, such as the ball, hoop, clubs, and rope.

Anna also joined RAE Studios as a student in 2016 where she discovered her passion for cardio dance — a class format that brings together both dance and fitness. She has been teaching DRENCHED, a fun and sweaty all-levels cardio dance class, at RAE Studios since 2020. Dance continues to be Anna’s biggest passion and she is excited to share that with others in her class and in classes she takes as a student.

Born in the Bay Area, Thara has always had music and movement hold a large part of her life. Her passion for dance started in competing in cheerleading at a young age. She has since been training in other dance styles including hip hop, ballet and jazz. Thara's passion for fitness has also led her to enjoy running, hiking and yoga - where she also received two teacher training certificates from The Yoga Company and Corepower Yoga. Though cardio dance has really united her joy for fitness, love for music and passion for dance. DRENCHED is the embodiment of those three things she holds close.

Diamond (she/her) was born and raised in San Diego, CA. At the age of 18 she moved to San Francisco to pursue a degree in Fine Arts. Throughout her time in the city she has grown as an artist and has looked to explore many avenues of creativity and expand her artistry. Diamond’s journey as a dancer began in late September, 2021 when she became a Studio Host at Rae Studios. Since her time she has grown as a dancer and is still looking to push her education. As she looks to find her voice as a dancer she continuously grows appreciation for multiple different forms, styles and cultures. Diamond currently teaches and trains as one of the instructors for DRENCHED! Eventually she would like to see herself grow as a choreographer and freestyle performer.

Mahiro/Mahi (she/her), a passionate dancer, is from Illinois and recently made San Francisco her home. She started her dance journey at the age of three with ballet training at Fauborg School of Ballet and went on to perform in multiple shows. Transitioning to a competitive dance team, Mahiro embraced styles like jazz, pom-dance, and kick-dance, even achieving a top 5 placement at Nationals in 2016. As a choreographer and team leader, she honed her skills, fostering collaboration and guiding fellow dancers for four years.

In college, despite the limited opportunities for dance, Mahiro found ways to continue sharing her love for dance. She choreographed and taught group dances for professional business organization competitions, raising funds for various charities. She traught peers with all varying skill levels. In 2021, she joined RAE Studios, where she reconnected with her passion and developed a new affinity for hip-hop, pop jam, and DRENCHED. She especially had a deep affection for DRENCHED because it promotes students of all skill levels who share a common desire to embrace dance for wellness. Under the mentorship of Jessica Rae, Mahiro's dedication and talent propelled her to become a DRENCHED teacher in less than half a year.

Now, Mahiro eagerly looks forward to inspiring students from diverse dance backgrounds. With each step she takes as a teacher, she aims to ignite the same passion within her students, fostering an inclusive space where they can cultivate their creative and wellness aspirations.
